1660 Lake Purgatory Drive Colorado, La Plata County, Durango
1660 Lake Purgatory Drive The home is affectionately known as ?Moonshadows?, due to the dappled light of the full moon through the Ponderosa Pine forested one acre lot adding to the scenic beauty experienced both in and outside the home. A seasonal creek runs along the southern edge of the lot , which has been professionally mitigated for fire safety, and natural rock from the land has been collected and formed into a primitive ?wall? along the property line. Additional exterior features include a solar powered cascading
water feature and a permanent fire pit in the garden area on the northern side of the house. Wildlife is frequently seen on this lot that has been maintained via ongoing, thoughtful stewardship by the owner. Other exterior features include two driveways. One leads to the two-car garage on the lower level of the home and the other drive runs up the hillside behind the home for ground level, no-stairs access to the main level of the home.
Continued Other thoughtful exterior features include the Pro-Panel metal roof, durable Geobond stucco, and fire resistant Hardieplank soffit and trim. The roof fasteners and gaskets were thoroughly replaced in 20 19, and the exterior was repainted in 20 17, evidence of the ongoing care of the home. More features include a built-in fire suppression system that includes a holding tank on the lower level. This whole-house system was inspected and updated in 2021. The in-floor radiant heating system was inspected and service in 2022.
Carvings of wildlife can be seen in various points where felled trees have been transformed into outdoor mountain décor, including the two ?bear posts?that support the hammock in the garden area near the waterfall. Views of the Hermosa Cliffs to the west can be seen from the deck and living room of the home. The deck of the home, which wraps around much of the west facing elevation is designed with ease of care in mind. The galvanized steel grate decking requires little or no maintenance, and virtually eliminates snow shoveling in winter, as new snowfall does not build up on the deck.
